Barbecue Beef Sandwiches

Posted on

I saved a recipe for “Perfect Pulled Pork” that I found in a magazine in an ad for pork, but since I don’t like pork (other than bacon, of course), I decided to try the recipe with beef and turn it into barbecue beef sandwiches.  It worked famously!  I’m not a huge meat eater, but I kind of went crazy for these and was so sad when the last of the leftovers were gone.  I can’t wait to make them again.

Barbecue Beef Sandwiches

Printable recipe
Printable recipe with picture

5 lbs. beef roast
2 teaspoons smoked paprika
2 teaspoons black pepper
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup water
2-3 cups barbecue sauce (I use Sweet Baby Ray’s)
Soft sandwich buns
Dilly Cucumber Salad or coleslaw (optional)

Combine all seasoning in a small bowl and rub evenly over roast. Place meat in a 6-quart slow cooker; add water. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 4-5 hours or until beef is very tender. If you are at home, I recommend turning the roast over halfway through cooking time because the top will get a little dry. Place beef on large cutting board or platter and let rest for 10-15 minutes. Meanwhile, pour out all the juices from the crockpot. Pull, slice, or chop the meat and return to crockpot. Stir in as much barbecue sauce as you desire. Serve on buns and top with Dilly Cucumber Salad or coleslaw, if desired.

Serves 16-20

Recipe source: adapted from the National Pork Board’s Perfect Pulled Pork

  1. I like your last shot. So colorful and fun, which I don’t usually associate with pulled pork sandwiches.

  2. I think it’s Sweet Baby Ray’s that makes them soooo good! I have done a pork roast and pork chops similar to this recipe (both shred well enough), and we have gobbled it up each time. That brand of BBQ sauce is the best I’ve had. I could drink it straight from the bottle.

  4. Yummy! Barbeque Beef sandwiches take me back to my childhood. Once a week, the neighborhood store, half a block from our house, would make them and sell them 4 for a dollar. They were fabulous. Thanks for the walk down memory lane and the great recipe.
